Hiking with Jay
« on: July 10, 2016, 09:20:09 PM »

The first in my peak a week series
helping a friend realize his ambition to summit a few of the higher peaks in Montana
we start with Livingston peak, at nine thousand three hundred feet it is one of the shorter peaks in this Mountain range.
At 73 years of age, this was a great beginning for my friend...join us...woods

Thanks for watching Craig :)
next in line Rams Horn Peak, a smidgit above ten thousand...located a bit south and west of emigrant.
we have been blessed with two solid days of rain with cooler temps predicted...more rain today, so this should help reduce the spread of any fires...thanks again  :cheers:...woods

Quite nice of you to help your friend Dave.  You have a knack for making great videos.  Except for not being worn out after the climb I felt like I was with you.  Thanks for another great video.

   Always great to see folks getting together & enjoying the outdoors!
:thumbsup:


Jay seemed like a nice feller! He hung in there right to the end & that is great for a feller over 70! I don't know if I could still do the elevations like that anymore, with my COPD. Ya'll seemed to do just fine! Glad to see ya'll make the peak!
:)


Saw you were wearing the web gear & suspender harness this trip also. Good choice!
;)


Thanks for sharing your climb together! Looking forward to your next trip!
:)
I love being out in the woods!   I like this quote from Mors Kochanski - "The more you know, the less you carry". I believe in the same creed, & think  "Knowledge & honed skills" are the best things to carry with ya when you're out in the wilds. They're the ultimate "ultralight" gear! ;)

Thanks for taking us along Woods. Very inspiring scenery. Nothing substandard with your videos at all.
